IceCube researchers come up empty on first neutrino test
Searching for cosmic accelerators via IceCube
In our universe there are particle accelerators 40 million times more powerful than the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Scientists don't know what these cosmic accelerators are or where they are located, ...
Video: Observatory catches neutrinos in a south pole block of ice
Scientists are using a one cubic kilometer block of ice at the South Pole to help unravel one of the great scientific mysteries of our time.
New map of cosmic rays in the Southern sky presented at physics meeting
For the first time, scientists have an almost complete sky map of high-energy cosmic rays.
Antarctic IceCube observatory to hunt dark matter
An extraordinary underground observatory for subatomic particles has been completed in a huge cube of ice one kilometre on each side deep under the South Pole, researchers said.
Antarctic neutrino-hunting project IceCube named Breakthrough of the Year by Physics World
International high-energy physics research project IceCube has been named the 2013 Breakthrough of the Year by British magazine Physics World. The Antarctic observatory has been selected for making the first observation of cos ...
